I've been researching things to do in Seattle. I know we'd like to hit Snoqualmie falls, and possibly Redhook Brewery.
Other things on the possibility list are: Aurora Bridge, Center for Wooden Boats, Pike Place Market, Seattle Center, and the Waterfront. What else would you suggest? AND what things on my list would you not recommend? Not including the reunion, we'll have 4-5 days there (I'm still working out how long to stay in each location
Thanks in advance for your help!!!!
I am not familiar with that park. It is convenient to get to Seattle via the Bainbridge Island to Seattle ferry. If that doesn't work out, there is a very nice park in Gig Harbor (Gig Harbor RV Resort.) If you stay there you would "drive around" and not take the ferry to get to Seattle. But the ferry system is nice, but pricey. Do not take your RV on the ferry as it is very expensive.
Falls are nice and so is Red Hook. Nearby redhook is Ste. Michelle Winery. They have concerts throughout the summer and are great to take in.
Skip the Aurora Bridge. Just another bridge. Nothing to see. The Pike Place Market is great to see as is the waterfront. Close to each other.
I would suggest the Locks. Not only see the boats go thru the locks up close but also also see the salmon climb the ladder to get back into the lake to spaun.
Boeing has a tour of their 777/747/787 plant in Everett. Very interesting. Also the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field just south of Seattle city is a great museum. There is a new museum that just opened in South Lake Union very close to the wooden boat place. It is the Museum of History and Industry.
Take a drive to Hurricane Ridge on the Olympic Penninsula. Also Port Townsend is a nice little town. You will be staying in Poulsbo, which is a fun little town.
There is plenty to see and do in the Seattle area. Enjoy your stay.
